Happy Thoughts Watercoloring


I'm taking Online Card Classes' Watercolor for Card Makers:  Exploring Mediums, and I tried out one of Kristina Werner's techniques for my card today.  I lightly traced one of the star dies from My Creative Time's Bunch of Stitched Star Dies onto watercolor paper, and then masked the edges with some rubber cement.  I was then able to give a light blue "halo" around the outside of it, using one of my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens, with water and a watercolor brush.  Once it dried, I rubbed off the rubber cement, and painted the star itself, using color from the Zig pens and a watercolor brush.  

After it dried, I trimmed the whole thing with one of the MCT Stitched Square Dies Inside & Out, and then added a stamped sentiment from MCT's Happy Thoughts.  The "happy" die I used is also from this set.  A few clear sequins finished it off!
